As we all seem to be using a wider variety of different wood types, I have been searching for information regarding potential problems resulting from exposure to unfamiliar wood. During my search, I found a fairly extensive list of cautions related to different Wood Species on The Wood Database site at . . .http://www.wood-database.com/wood-articles/wood-allergies-and-toxicity/ Dust collection adds to the cost of a properly equipped workshop, but this information should help to determine w...
I tried a handful of new things and learned a lot, building this box. I did some things well and some not so much… Some things that went poorly were due to my lack of equipment…and PATIENCE to properly check and double check that the equipment I had to work with was set up as precisely as possible before making any final cuts. Other things went poorly because I’m inexperienced and/or a bit uncomfortable with some tools. Full disclosure – routers make me nervous. So far, I’ve been abl...
This was my first time using tung oil. I watched a couple videos on youtube about it just to be sure that I wasn’t going to mess something up after reading the instructions on the can. It was really easy and I really like the results a heck of a lot. I waited 48 hours to do anything with it. After that, I suppose that the wood expanded a bit from absorbing the oil. Maybe I’m imagining things, though, but I had to do some sanding on the lid in order to have the lid fit like it did before I ...
as woodworkers we tend to underappreciate woods that are not mahogany or walnut, but I think we should appreciate the unique characteristics that can be found in pine when explored long enough, which is easy to do thanks to its availability. below is a link to a box I made out of a unique piece of fire knot pine. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iH1wFVv5IDA
I have never properly introduced myself here, so I think it’s time to do it:My name is Tatiana (or Tanya), I’m 25 years old. I am a professional woodcarving artist with a degree in Applied Fine Arts from the Volga Regional State University in Russia. I specialize in chip carving on basswood and draw my inspiration from my own life, nature, and music. I’ve been carving ever since I visited a woodcarving studio in 2008 and was so struck by the craft that I was inspired to try it for...
Hello all! So for this weekend’s project, I decided to make a handy stand for my miter saw. It’s very simple construction but it’s solid and does the job. I also added a trash bag on the inside to give the stand a second function. A third function is that the rails on the side can be used for clamp storage!In the future I will probably add castors to the base so that it can be easily moved around my small shop.Thanks!View on YouTube YouTube
Well it has been a while but I went thru some crappy times medically but it is over and life goes on !!!!Here are a couple of videos that I made and what I am trying to show is the piece by piece construction of my V2 leg vise . I am a little slow building the vise at the moment but I am nearing completion . I posted two videos on you tube (part 1 and 2 ) with a third part to come in a few days .https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lWlphTPJDrMhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CKnH0bTyJgk Kla...
Here you can see the difference in the profile when I used the correct guide bearing… Lots of sanding… I had a small blowout from scraping the glue off of one of the panels and there was some pretty deep grain , so I decided to try out filling the grain using Timber Mate on this one. Here they are all done with one coat of spray shellac. Now I just need to figure out how to match the color of the wood filler.
If you’re more than a little nerdy, you might like to learn how I used a bit of calculus in doing some string inlay. Just click on Calculus Meets String Inlay to read about it.
